Job description

We are looking for counsellors across 37 centres in England and Wales. Our centres in London, which are based in Ilford, Southend, Notting Hill, Barnet & Enfield and Blackheath are all recruiting counsellors. 

Becoming a volunteer relationship counsellor with Marriage Care is a long term commitment that has many rewards for each volunteer and for those that they help. You will find support from like-minded people and have opportunities to increase your professional knowledge and skills in this role. Marriage Care provide ongoing CPD, supervision, insurance and regional/national support for our volunteer counsellors.

Qualified counsellors will need to undertake our DRC (Diploma in Relationship Counselling) before volunteering with us. 

We ask for a commitment of 2 hours counselling per week and the necessary CPD and supervision required for this. We would also expect our counsellors to take part in centre meetings which are held between 2-4 times a year depending on the centre.
